The modern film adaptation of Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo used to be one of my favorite films. Then I read Count of Monte Cristo... the movie is absolutely nothing like the book.


I think this is a feature, not a bug. It's short, it's redemptive, and it's super targeted. The book is massive, rambling, and epic, but suffers a bit when viewed with a modern eye. 

Adaptations can be very fun. The new graphic novel COUNT is spectacular.

If it’s really that good, I’d read it. 😇

If you want! Obviously I love it 😂 but some people on here haven’t been so enthusiastic.... I’ll send you the doc link when I get home! (So like two hours, we’re still driving home lol)

So I may or may not have opened that in another tab without your permission, but I'll stop reading now...Only got to the prologue.

 

Would you care if I read it? I want to see what it's about, even if you're trying to edit it and all of that. 🙂 You also have a lot of siblings...Girl....

I read three chapters so far, and I think Savannah is basically you

Basically, yeah. I have a habit of having characters a lot like me. But I didn't plan it this way. Savannahg popped into my head, and while my subconcious may have created her, I didn't plan in any way for her to be so much like me! It just sort of happened. 

 

I can't tell if you're calling me out or just commenting on it 😆
